See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/3YA9> for a start.

Also look at settings like anonymous_list and the 'Notifications' on
General Options, the Bounce processing settings (hint set
bounce_score_threshold <= 1 and bounce_you_are_disabled_warnings = 0
and set the Notifications on) and set Privacy options... ->
Subscription rules -> subscribe_policy to Require approval and don't
approve unwanted subscriptions.
